I have been ill with Fibromyalgia for over twenty-seven years. One would think that patience would become easier, but I am beginning to think that I am losing all the patience I have. It feels as though the 'hold' button on my life will never be released, and then it will be too late because I will be dead. Lately, my short term memory is the pits, but it was even worse my first year ill. Does anyone else here find that you lose your patience so much faster than you used to? It feels so unvirtuous, yukky. Is this typical?
